COSPLAYzelda by Zeldeon
Yooooo so this Halloween I went ahead and chose to make my own costume- Zelda from A Link Between Worlds! It was a really fun first attempt at doing my own cosplay. I got a ton of help from my grandma to do the stitching. We bought the white dress and cut up a shirt but everything else was done my myself/ a family member who was willing to lend me a hand! Even tried styling a wig and ended up going with my normal curly hair because. Words don't describe my hatred for how that wig looked >.> There wasn't even time to finish the design on the front because weeps a month was not enough time but still! Love how this turned out. :') I learned a lot about this art form and a lot about myself while making it!

Good to be back though! Time to clear out my messages |D

Thank you Nix! Aha it definitely was a ton of fun. I got a lot of help on the stitching though I'm really interested in learning how to do it on my own now. Already thinking about different characters to be in the future~ ovo

That's so true >v< Don't have any set-in-stone plans for the future yet, though Tetra from Wind Waker is definitely one I want to do, along with Red from Transistor. Other than that I don't know, I might find a few that I can go thrifting for to keep things easy. owo
Aha yeah thank you for offering! If I need help I'll definitely ask you if I can't find anything. (your tumblr is already a pretty good resource for me anyways so yeah |D)

Ahh Tetra would be super cute too.
And Red!!!! I haven't played Transistor (yet) but omg I'm so in love with her design... I wanna cosplay her cause she's just so darn pretty.
And thrifting is totally a viable thing, yeah 'u' It's good on saving money too!
Yes though ehe, but glad to hear it *u*

Yeah, I really like the idea of doing Tetra because her design is  so simple I wouldn't have to worry about designs so it's a great low-stress learning opportunity. Plus she's just close to my heart.
And wheezes yes, I haven't played Transistor yet either but I've watched Let's Plays and just fallen in love with Supergiant Games in general so I intend to play it eventually. And Red is a beauty man, aahhhh ;v;

Simple costumes are good to start with! Don't be me who took on Homura as my first-ever big project with pretty much zero sewing experience 'u'
0/10 do not recommend. 
But close to your heart is good!
Ahhh yes wheezes. I could watch a playthrough when I have time. Or just buy it over winter break and play it *u*

Haha yeah, that's the reason I decided against tackling any of the other Zeldas because while they're amazing I did not want to shove a six month project into one |D
Ahh yes both of those ideas are good ones! I'm in support owo d
